From the Publisher:

Tactical Urbanism, written by Mike Lydon and Anthony Garcia, two
founders of the movement, promises to be the foundational guide for urban
transformation. The authors begin with an in-depth history of the Tactical
Urbanism movement and its place among other social, political, and urban
planning trends. A detailed set of case studies, from guerilla wayfinding signs
in Raleigh, to pavement transformed into parks in San Francisco, to a street art
campaign leading to a new streetcar line in El Paso, demonstrate the breadth and
scalability of tactical urbanism interventions. Finally, the book provides a
detailed toolkit for conceiving, planning, and carrying out projects, including
how to adapt them based on local needs and challenges.

Tactical Urbanism will inspire and empower a new generation of engaged
citizens, urban designers, land use planners, architects, and policymakers to
become key actors in the transformation of their communities.
